About Melissa Hutchinson

Nick and Missy moved to New Bern, NC in 1988. Nick was originally born in England and led a very interesting life in many different countries. Missy was born in Md but always loved the southeast. After graduating from the Univ. of MD in 1983 we moved to Florida together. In 1988 we decided to sell everything and live on our sailboat, cruise the Bahamas and Florida, and then cruise up the East Coast. We got to NC and haven't left.

Melissa Hutchinson purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Melissa Hutchinson chose New Bern

We live in New Bern and saw that it had so much to offer visitors. There were hotels in the area but very very few vacation rentals. We prefer to stay in a home when we travel and so assumed others would as well. So we built Sandy Garden Cottage in 2004. And our wonderful guests have loved it here as much as we have!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Missy!

We can't express who much we enjoyed Sandy Gardens! I love it when a place is "better than expected." It was perfect for our gathering in New Bern!! We loved having coffee overlooking the Neuse River in the mornings and sipping wine with the sunset! You certainly have a gem of a place. Mark and I had a fun canoe ride (almost to the other bank) on a calm afternoon. We loved walking and meeting neighbors and friendly dogs! Sorry we never met as we decided to head home one day earlier to break up the long journey home. Hope you found the cottage in good shape as we tried to care for it as you do.

I am sure you will see the Kramer family again! Thank you again for sharing your piece of paradise!



ps- We really loved all your cute touches in the house. Martha Stewart could take some pointers! Also, the jigsaw puzzle took us 2 days to complete!

Good morning Missy! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandy Garden Cottage. All of us were so excited to see such a clean, bright and airy place to stay and we already have started planning on coming back. In addition, we were blown away with the water view. We loved New Bern and had a great time walking around and enjoying the great food at the places your recommended. We will definitely be back. Take care and thank you so much for your hospitality.

We came down here for a family vacation and to get a feel of living in the area. We all loved the fact that it was a short drive to New Bern, family, Walmart, and church. The house had everything we needed. Missy was attentive to all that was going on from the air conditioner having a little cliche to the extra bad weather. The girls are already asking when we are coming back.

Missy & Nick,

We so enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Sandy Garden cottage. It was wonderfully outfitted and well-stocked with everything my family needed for a perfect weekend in New Bern. I couldn't have asked for a better "base camp" for the MS150 bike event. The location is wonderfully isolated & serene yet just a couple of minutes from the charming little town. The short ride across the Trent River bridge was the perfect warmup for my 150 mile bike ride!

The sunset on Friday night was one of the most spectacular I've ever seen. I've got a ton of pictures of my kids in your little garden with the gorgeous purple, orange, and red skyline of New Bern across the Trent in the background.

After spending about 9 hours riding my bike all around the Pamlico Sound, drifting off to sleep to the soothing sounds of crickets and waves lapping against the beachwall was incredibly relaxing.

This was my first visit to New Bern and I'm sure it won't be my last. We'll definitely stay here again next time we're in town!

Thanks Again!

Nick and Missy,

We really enjoyed our weekend at Sandy Garden Cottage! You've done a great job developing a wonderful vacation cottage. The house is beautiful!

We really enjoyed the view (especially the view of the sunsets)and the chance to go fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and hunting for Shark's teeth in the river. We also enjoyed visiting downtown New Bern, especially Tryon Palace. We hope to visit Sandy Garden Cottage again sometime soon!
